Windows 7 Boot Manager Missing

by tinkeringtj / November 14, 2012 3:44 AM PST

Guys, I'm having an issue where my Windows boot manager is missing. However when trying to repair, there isn't even a win7 installation file on any of my HDDs. However if I search for a driver that may be located in a file, I can view all of my files on my C drive. Help!

I think you have more clues to share.

You posted some very good clues in your other post. Without them folk are left to guess badly.

I had that happen since I had two hard drives
The first error was I had them hooked up backward. When I reversed them I had in setup, four items on the boot 1] Cd Rom 2] hard drive with 500GB, 3] hard drive with 80GB and 4] Networking. I had one disabled, check them out on your machine. All four with the exception of an "A" drive (that is disabled). Darrell
